(LOS ANGELES, CA – August 15, 2017) Breathe, the first aerosol cleaning line ever certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s Safer Choice Program, is now available at all 93 Wegmans Food Markets stores. Products that carry the Safer Choice label have been carefully evaluated by EPA scientists to ensure they contain ingredients that are safer for human health and the environment.
Powered by air with BreatheSafeTM technology, Breathe represents a major technological advancement in aerosols versus traditional cans that use hazardous and flammable petrochemical propellants such as liquefied petroleum gas.
"We are honored to offer Breathe to Wegmans' consumers first, as the retailer has a history of supporting products that are both efficient and safer for people, pets and the environment," said Ross Sklar, chief executive officer, Starco Brands. "Breathe's air powered technology is the future of aerosols by removing the toxic, flammable and carbon foot-printing propellants that make you need to open a window just to clean your bathroom."
Breathe uses nontoxic ingredients and does not produce harmful fumes so consumers no longer need to be concerned about the harmful inhalation and environmental effects of aerosol cleaners while still retaining the efficacy they desire.
Wegmans, recognized by the EPA as an outstanding Safer Choice Retailer three years in a row, is a longtime champion of the Safer Choice Program and products. The company is committed to offering national and Wegmans brand cleaning products that meet Safer Choice standards. Breathe fits with their mission to provide best-in-class, effective and environmentally responsible product offerings to their customers.
Breathe's product benefits include:
• EPA’s Safer Choice Program Certified – Only aerosol line ever certified by the EPA Safer Choice Program;
• Efficacy – Industrial strength formulas proven to be as effective as the national brands, as certified by an independent, third party research lab;
• Performance – pressure of aerosol spray penetrates deeper into a surface than trigger sprays;
• Efficiency – aerosols provide significantly more coverage compared to trigger sprays;
